Seventeen-year-old Katherine Forster has some important words for the youth ministries in our churches: We need more Bible. Teenagers themselves see the need for better grounding, greater challenge, and more biblical instruction. Forster gives 4 reasons, from the teen perspective:
- We desperately need the truth.
- We need to see these truths for ourselves.
- We need to be challenged.
- We need the fellowship in God’s word.
Do you believe teenagers can learn to handle God’s word? Is there any other way we can equip them to face life’s challenges?
If you’re not sure how to start teaching your youth group to study the Bible, I’ve heard from many youth pastors who have found my book a helpful place to begin. Please consider Ms. Forster’s gracious appeal.
